Hello,

Anybody know where I can get a trunk antenna like the picture I have attached? It came off a 61. Closest thing I can find that is similar is a trunk antenna for a 59 Thunderbird.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Andrew. I am fairly certain that the Falcon only had antennas mounted to the front passenger fender.

A lot can happen to a car fifty years of multiple owners... or at the original dealerships during set-up.

If you like the look of the trunk mounted antenna (I do), go ahead and get one for a different model or made by an aftermarket manufacturer.

If your old antenna is a genuine Ford, it should have some part numbers cast into it somewhere, maybe inside the base. That should help identify what model and car it came from. If there are not any numbers to be found, it is likely aftermarket.

Ditto what Jeff said. I think it's a cool antenna as well, and if you pull the gasket off the bottom you may find some casting numbers there related to make and model it came from. Take a picture from below if you want help researching it. I've never seen it before.
